History of Mens Raf Simons Shoes
Belgian designer Raf Simons launched his own eponymous fashion label in 1995 and generated immediate attention for his punky new wave clothing designs rooted in youth sub-culture. Despite achieving massive global success and recognition within his own fashion label, Simons is perhaps best known for his ever-growing list of major collaborations with some of the most influential fashion houses in the world. He has designed clothes for Fred Perry, bags for Eastpac, and eyewear for Linda Farrow. More recently, Simons has ventured into several collaborations with sportswear giant Adidas, including a recent collection of gorgeous footwear rooted in vibrant and dynamic colors. Along with an army of other high-profile celebrity fans, Kanye West has become a huge fan of his work, and credits Raf Simons with inspiring his own first footsteps into the fashion industry.
